Preaching Done, Packing Begun

Phew! I'm swimming in a sea of relief and it feels wonderful. I preached my first sermon Sunday. What a day. It went great! What courage it takes to step up to that pulpit and offer a homily. I appreciate the work so many of you do so regularly! But it was a great experience and I feel good about it and glad it's over! I felt so supported in prayer, so thank you to those of you who were praying. I have sensed the Spirit with me lately and I will continue to lean into her and trust her.

I leave for England tomorow! Prayers for safe travel. I'm a nervous flyer, especially on those nighttime trans-Atlantic flights and I'll have my little ones with me without husband.

Then to Iona in a few weeks!

I feel blessed to be part of this community. Your words are a constant companion.

Safe trip - and enjoy! Glad the preaching went well, wish I could have heard you preach it (although I did sort of).
